Serbia’s New Government May Have Fewer Ministries, Novosti Says

May 11, 2012

Serbia will probably have a leaner new government with 15 ministries instead of 17 at present, Vecernje Novosti newspaper reported, citing a person close to coalition talks it did not name.

The negotiations involve the ruling Democratic Party and the Socialists who emerged as second and third in the May 6 vote for parliament and may remain in power if they secure majority against the opposition Serbian Progressive Party that won most assembly seats, according to the report.
